I have mentioned before that ‘greenscaping’ is the way to go if you care about the environment, want to have a great-looking yard, and want to save time and money too. I love a beautiful landscape, but I am really not crazy about spending all my free time working in the yard. I would rather spend more time enjoying it. One of the real pluses about greenscaping is that it is not only great for the environment, it also reduces your yard work. By planning well, greenscaping puts nature to work for you in your yard. Just a reminder: here are the five steps for entering the world of greenscaping:
The Oakhurst Garden is host to 30 community plots, comprised of 1 school group, two girl scout troops, individuals, couples, and families. I queried the plot holders on his/her best water saving techniques that I thought would be fun to share with you.
Metro-Atlanta is home to over 150 community gardens on public and private land. People from all over the city come together to grow fresh, healthy vegetables. In the process, they demonstrate that the local food movement is also about growing it yourself, in the company of neighbors.
